Dalglish Delighted With Securing Youngster Deal

By on July 11, 2011

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is pleased that John Flanagan has signed a new deal with the Reds. The 18-year old impressed the Anfield boss after he was forced into the first team due to severe injuries.

“It’s great for everybody,” said Dalglish, who handed the teenager his debut at home to Manchester City.

“Both him and Jack Robinson coming in last year gave the first-team players a lift.

“Obviously Flanno played a lot of games, it never fazed him, he had a great attitude towards it and he made a big contribution.

“The contract he’s got is a reward for the work that he’s done.

“I’m sure he’d be the first one to pay tribute to the work done by the academy staff who’ve brought him this far.

“They’ve given him over to us and they’ve given us a very good player, and it’s up to us to try to develop him even further.

“He just needs to continue to build on the good start he’s made.

“He never got carried away with the success he had and the many complimentary words that were spoken about him, and I’m sure he won’t get carried away with signing a new contract.

“Sometimes you rest on your laurels but I’m sure he won’t.”
